    I know there are several on here who watch the Real World and the Challenges. I came across this today. It saddened me. Apologies in advance if this is a DB.

    Might want to throw a name in the thread title. I'd like to know before clicking on the link to see if it's like Alton or someone.

    That being said, RIP Frankie. I remember her fear of boats. San Diego was not a great season, and she was a bit weird. But her mom said she led a full life.

    25? Way too soon.

    That is a shock.

    Surprising, too, is that out of the 90+ cast veterans only two have died ... especially the way some of these fools live their lives.

    Wasn't much of a fan of hers on the show but it's really sad to see someone die at such a young age.

    Not that big a shock.

    She talked about knowing she would die young a lot when she was on the show.

    She was the Hello Kitty chick.

    The story doesn't say she died from the cystic fibrosis, though. Hopefully there wasn't something else involved.

    Which one of the cast members had cancer or something?

    One had aids. Pedro died in 1994. Oh, and what's her face had cancer, but was in remission during the Duel.

    That's who I'm thinking of.

    The self-cutting makes me wonder if she did herself.

    Well, her mom said she thought she was asleep. I would think she would notice a pool of blood.

    And Diem had cancer.
